security janet napolitano will remain in her post for obama's second term according to white house officials. napolitano's and who prefers to serve as arizona governor, has been criticized by immigrant rights advocates for presiding over a record number of deportations in the 2012 fiscal year. in a statement, a representative from the national day labor organizing network said -- the news napolitano's staying on comes as the obama administration is said to be preparing to unveil a new push for immigration reform in the coming months. federal prosecutors have dropped the charges against the computer programmer and cyber activist aaron swartz following his suicide on friday at the age of 26. in an e-mail to the boston globe, his attorney wrote the dismissal was "too little too late," saying it "would have been welcome this time last week." iran supports was facing up to 35 years in prison for sneaking into the massachusetts institute of technology and downloading millions of articles provided by the non-profit research service jstor. his family says prosecutors are partially to blame
. will president obama second be any different? turning me now, congressman bob good lad, chairman of the house judiciary committee which oversees immigration reform. okay. congressman, we have a list of things that apparently the president wants to push for, one requiring businesses to verify new employees in the country legally. two, create a guest worker program of low-wage immigrants and three, make immigrants seeking legal status pay fines and back taxes. can you support any of that? >> oh, all of that is well worth looking at very carefully, and that is exactly what we will do. republicans in the house are very enthused about doing immigration reform this year as well. how much we can do will depend upon how much we can find in common with our friends over in the senate and with the white house and our colleagues here in the house. gerri: congressman, what i ask you was to mckinney's support those three specific ideas? >> those threes the severe ideas are all things tht if done correctly we can find a way to support some of them. obviously the one that are the most difficult is somewhat o

" series, the road forward. president obama's second term challenges. >> there were 2,000 reporters with harold fiein man leading te charge. how daring is president obama in his second term and able to be a transformational president rather than a president of only eight who won a 50% majority for his second term, which is a significant achievement but not a transformational one. focusing on his biggest vulnerability, the fate of the middle class, the fact that on his watch, the middle class is worse off than it was when he first took the oath of office. there really is no plan to change that. when he talks about plans for the second term, he's focusing on immigration, gun safety, energy, but when he talks about fiscal stability, he's focusing more on the deficit and less on job creation, how we're going to strengthen the middle class, even though that was a pivotal issue with the campaign. we look around with students not being able to pay student loans coming out of college and able to get jobs, this is a real vulnerability. 165,000 new jobs last month is not enough to turn things
[ male announcer ] progresso. you gotta taste this soup. >>> one week away from president obama's second inaugural, and all this week we're going to be looking back at great inaugural moments from the past. back in 1993 the 46-year-old bill clinton took the oath of office for the first time. he became the first baby boomer in the white house and told the country that change is not something to fear. >> when our founders boldly declared america's independence to the world and our purposes to the almighty, they knew that america to endure would have to change. not change for change's sake, but change to preserve america's ideals, life, liberty, the pursuit of happiness. though we march to the music of our time, our mission is timeless. each generation of americans must define what it means to be an american. >> well, bill clinton, who had a history of being long-winded, went on to deliver what aides said was the third shortest inaugural address in american history. we'll be right back. both of us actually. our pharmacist recommended it. and that makes me feel pretty good about it. and then

) jessica, all last year the concern about obama in his second term was going to be that he's going to go full on like socialist black panther one world government. now he appears to have gone more season one of mad men. what's happening? >> john, people forget, president obama is also half white. everybody was was so focused on black obama and all the black stuff he did in his first term. obama care, food stamp. they completely forgot about white obama who has been in there biding his time. just waiting to take this country back and restore the traditional america this black obama has worked so hard to destroy. >> jon: wow. exactly jon: i got so say, white obama has been playing a long game >> jon, you know, white obama has always been there making the occasional appearance. on vacation. on weekends. i mean, you're not going to catch a brother wearing those jeans and a bike helmet on a ten speed with cross trainers on. >> jon: that white obama is pretty white. >> the whitest. jon: so if white obama is 50% and black obama is 50%... >> well he's not quite like that, okay. according to the
. and what this showed us is that obama in the second term is going to be worse than obama in the first term. what we saw in one hour was the worst of our president on display. and republicans, they need to understand all of this dealing with obama. a man reckless, ruthless, and any president they will ever encounter. my next guess says he has a plan that will bolster the republicans plan. ohio senator is with us, how are you? >> great. >> sean: first, what do you make obama? only 2006 vote against the debt ceiling. now? >> he said would it be unpatriotic to vote to. >> sean: that is another thing. very that clip. do you want to see it? >> sure, it will be fun. >> sean: let's show the videotape. >> the problem is the way bush has done it over eight years is to take out a credit card from bank of china in the name of our children, driving up our national debt from $5 trillion for the first 42 presidents, number 43 added $4 thrillin by his lonesm. now, we have over $9 dwrinl of debt that we're going to have to pay back. $30,000 for every man, woman and child. that is irresponsible. it's unpatr
for president obama's inauguration in washington. >> pam: as president barack obama's second inauguration rapidly approaches. washinton d.c. is abuzz with preparations. 900,000 people are expected to attend this years ceremony. but that's only half the number of people that turned out to see the inauguration in 2009. about 250,000 people have the much coveted tickets to stand close to the president. last time many were turned away in confusion but this year looks to be better. there will be a private ceremony on january 20th followed by the public inauguration on january 21st. >> facebook is generating a lot buzz with a mysterious pressthe social media giant has invited the news media to "come and see what we're building." much of the speculation is latching onto the long- rumored facebook smartphone or tablet. but c-e-o mark zuckerberg told a magazine in september a phone is "clearly" the wrong strategy for facebook. we will be right back. look at you guys with your fancy-schmancy u-verse high speed internet. you know, in my day you couldn't just start streaming six ways to sunday. you'd

obama and doing so, well, he's demonstrating his insufferable moral superiority. the second trait we saw from obama during his press conference, his demagoguery was on display, he said that republicans were suspicious about social security and government support for the elderly and spending money on medical research and then get this, suspicious about programs a, making sure that kids and poverty are getting enough to eat. this is not only deeply dishonest, it's a gross distortion, a lecture coming from a man who is responsible for a massive increase in poverty during his presidency. now, a third thing we saw from obama's press conference was how deeply misleading his facts and his claims are. for example, obama kept saying his plan would cut 4 trillion dollars in the budget in the next decade, but that claim is utterly untrue. as any number of fact checkers have pointed out the 4 trillion dollar figure comes from number one, it counts 1 trillion in cuts and reached a year ago in the budget negotiations with congress, meaning those savings are already in the bank. number two, it counts 8
obama will be sworn into office for his second presidential term, and we continue our look back at great inaugural moments. here is the first president who was born in the 20th century, john f. kennedy. >> let the word go forth from this time and place to friend and foe alike, that the torch has been passed to a new generation of americans born in this century, tempered by war h disciplined by a hard and bitter feast, proud of our ancient heritage, and unwilling to witness or permit the small undoing of those human rights to which this nation has always been committed and to which we are committed today at home and around the world. >> wow. later in that speech jfk said another of his most famous lines, ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country. it's a line he paraphrased from george stmplt john, the head master at his prep school. i learned that nugget while researching for my book, "jack kennedy, elusive hero." does that make a difference? search "cost of financial advisors" i learned that nugget while researching for my book, "jack kennedy, elusive
the number killed by rifles. president obama today insisted that this is not about the second amendment. listen. >> the issue here is not whether or not we believe in the second amendment. the issue, other sensible steps that we can take to make sure that somebody like the individual in newtown cannot walk into a school -- >> he actually said that. lou: so committed to distraint -- restraining order is missing out right our second amendment right it makes you why he is never in the constitution of the first amendment as well? simply the expression of freedom of religion, implement a curfew, shut down the sale of liquor and drugs. white only close down bars and nightclubs, get people off our ministry to late hours all across america. it might have economic consequences. you have to wonder why the president does not double down in his assault on the constitution taking on not only the second, the first, fourth, 14th. there may be a reason that he has begun with the second amendment. without our rights under the second amendment removing the arrest of our bill of rights would be a lot easi
what president obama says they are not doing, that is, taking away our guns. mainstream liberal media abandoned any pretense of objectivity in their campaign to , well, shred the second amendment. for example, listen, if you will, to nbc nightly news anchor brian williams go all rachael matter now what his audience, repeatedly referring to a post newtown era of gun-control. >> now we turn to gun control in our post newtown era. the white house is gearing up for a fight of this issue. it is all in advance of the administration's push for new gun laws and the post newtown era. lou: msn bcf shultz went one step further. incredulously telling his audience that the reason for chicago, which is arguably the toughest anti-gun laws in the nation turning into the murder capital of america is all because of their lack of gun laws. >> a city that has got the strictest gun laws of america put forth by a mayor bloomberg verses of the gun laws that apparently don't even exist in chicago, you have to totally different numbers when it comes to lives lost. lou: chicago, of course, as we reported here
a second obama administration? >> immigration reform, something on gun violence but also if you put tax reform in there in its sense of not only providing a new simpler tax code, one that has a growth component to t but you can't get the tax reform without having some kind of lengthy, i'm not saying five or six years but at least lengthy cease-fire on debt ceilings and all these i tin rat fiscal dramas. if the president were able to move in those directions, get all three of those on the board, because that is about the window he has, second term presidency really begins to expire after two and a half years, maybe sometime sooner, that would be historic. >> rose: do you agree with that, al? >> i do. i'm very skeptical that it ain't going to happen in tax reform. i saw the '85, '86 tax act. almost none of the ingredients that existed then for that very difficult task exists today. i'm-- i think there was people on both sides who like to see it i am a very dubious. i think immigration is going to happen. and guns is a toss up right now but major is absolutely right. that winnow is those f

: finally tonight, as president obama prepares to begin his second term, "frontline" looks back at his first four years in office. the key moments and decisions that defined the president's first term are the subject of a one-hour documentary airing tonight called "inside obama's presidency." this excerpt explores the brutal economic conditions in the days following his 2008 victory celebration in chicago. >> if he had any idea that night how difficult this would be, the next day would prove it. >> so much for that election day euphoria. >> the economy has now lost 650,000 jobs just in the past three months. >> all eyes now on barack obama to turn it around. >> reporter: the cascade of bad news began with the economy. >> and fear swept through the markets. >> he had to start thinking about this the day after he was elected. >> this was the most event until and consequential presidential transition in american history. >> we were all worrieded about what we were seeing. we knew that the credit system was pretty quickly headed towards something that looked a lot like seizure. >> the president-
president biden and president obama? >> well, there's no doubt that the second amendment has been under attack since before obama even got into office, and i think a lot of us shared that concern several years ago, and it was reenforced when he said to the reference of remember these people stick to their guns and their religion, and when he made that statement, i think that was really a wakeup call for a lot of people. >> we have behind you semiautomatic rifles, and there are people who stricter gun regulation in the united states. why do you need a semiautomatic rifle if you're a firearm supporter. how would you react to them? >> semiautomatic rifles, for example, the ar-15, is really part of our culture. anybody that grew up, did military service in the 70s, was trained on an m-16, and it's kind of consistent with what we do with appreciating using similar-type weapons that we were trained on in the military, but this is a civilian legal version of the same thing. >> quickly, supporters of the second amendment believe in their need and right to protect the citizenry against aty rankl

in the second amendment. >> the vice president in a stat outlined 19 areas where president obama could use executive action to enact new gun-control policy. the president confirmed he was willing to bypass congress, if necessary. >> i'm confident that there are some steps that we can take that don't require legislation and that are within my authority as president. and where you get a step that has the opportunity to reduce the possibility of gun violence, then i want to go ahead and take it. >> well, a new "washington post"/abc poll shows 58% of americans are in favor of a ban on assault weapons. 39% oppose. 65% support a ban on high-capacity ammunition clips. an overwhelming 88% say they support background checks at gun shows. as for the nra's proposal of placing armed guards in schools, a majority of americans, 55% support the idea while 42% oppose. >>> parents of some of the young victims of the sandy hook school shooting are speaking out for the first time. during a town hall victims' family members and other newtown residents launched a group called the sandy hook promise, calling fo
than i did. it is absolutely vital, especially in a second term strategically, politically, morally, pragmatically that he president obama, pick this fight. this certainly compounds the view that the republican party and its operatives are in the pocket of an unreasonable uncompromising national rifle association. so it's a good fight to pick and my only point was i think sometimes there's a self marginalization, because i think this is an all-american question that is worth though fight. >> jennifer: i totally get that. point well-taken on that. there are two conversations, i'm guessing, that go on inside of the white house in the inner circle. one is do you pick this fight and lose and are you weakened for other agenda items down the road? and the second one is how much political capital do you spend on this fight, if this is the first fight out of the barrel? do you know what i'm saying. >> yes. i think there are three big fights moving forward. if one believes the president was so horrified and moved and angered at what happened in nowtown, and the stars ar
you action, sir? >> you know, it just sad this is what president obama is going to become in his second term. he seems to be the only person in washington that wants to talk about the nation defaulting on its debt. i think there's nothing that could be more irresponsible for somebody to suggest that america would default. i don't want us to do that. but just remember the debt ceiling the fact that we're hitting up against this max on our credit card again is a symptom of the spending problem in washington and president obama doesn't want to recognize that that problem exists. >> when you say no one is talking about defaulting on the debt, does that also include letting the debt ceiling lapse? >> well, you know, larry, what we're once again up on the debt ceiling. we have been here before, a year and half ago we were having this debate again. i supported a plan cut cap and balance that would have focused on solving the problem. but clearly we haven't sold the problem and credit card is maxed out again and president obama wants to get that money from china and send the bill to the
